A Kick in the Pants

Sometimes things come up just when you need to see them and today is one of those days. This morning I read a blog post from one of my favourite bloggers (Meg from bbhwithms) that really kicked me in the butt. I like to think I am doing well managing my MS, but I now realize…

A day in the life

The type of MS that I was initially diagnosed with in 2005 is RRMS (relapsing remitting) which means that there are attacks when my symptoms flare up called a relapse.  These relapses can be extreme (I had double vision for over a month in one relapse and at another time, I lost use of my…

Dear Little One

Well, we are 2 days away from a brand-new baby entering our family.  Our oldest daughter is set to deliver by cesarean on Wednesday and I can’t help but be so excited and anxious about his arrival (that’s right, it’s a boy)!  I’m not anxious in a nervous way, I am anxious in a “I…

Life is Short

You never know when it is your time, but it sure doesn’t seem fair when someone is taken away far too early. You feel like you just aren’t finished with that person, there is so much left to do, to explore, times that you still need to laugh and cry with them.  You question why? …

My MS Diagnosis – Part 2 & Low Carb Lemon Cheesecake Jars

This may be a bit long, but its the story, so what can I say? I promise you will be happy with the yummy recipe at the end! Can I share a secret with you?  There is something terrifying about having your first MRI scan, at least for me there was. It was then that I…

My MS Diagnosis Story – Part 1

Putting my entire MS diagnosis story up on my blog is a bit out of my comfort zone and I have been debating with myself for a while about whether or not to do it. In the end, I decided that if my story can help someone else, then it’s worth putting it out there for…

Coincidence or Serendipity?

“To the rational mind, nothing is inexplicable, only unexplained.” Something  very strange happened to me a couple of weeks ago and I can’t for the life of me figure it out. It’s left me wondering about a higher power out there we don’t know or understand. Whatever it was, I am thankful to say the least….

World MS Day

I’ve been MIA the past 3 weeks because I have been dealing with a very painful relapse of my MS, but thanks to some heavy duty steroids and some much needed rest and relaxation, I am slowly recovering, and it seems fitting that I am back at it today. So today, in honor of World…

Happy Anniversary

Today is our anniversary and life lately has been hectic to say the least. So I wanted to push pause on the usual blog content to let my husband know just how important he is (as he is working away) to me and the amazing impact he has had on my life.  On May 13,…

Low Carb & Gluten Free Butterfinger Bars ~Game On!!

I’m in a bit of a quandary………I have a yearly MRI for my MS and I got the reminder call today for an appointment next week in Victoria.  Now Victoria is a beautiful place and I love to go there to spend a few days, but it is a 3-4 hour drive each way and…

Another Silver Lining

I sometimes look around at my life, my husband, my kids and think how in the heck did I get so lucky?  I don’t know the answer to this, all I do know is that the Lord works in mysterious ways and he knew what I needed long before I did.  I’ve always known that…

Savvy Minerals & Morning Glory Muffins!

I don’t consider myself very in tune or knowledgeable about fashion or beauty but when I started my blog I said at some point I would talk about it and the time has come my friends. Have you ever bought something and thought what the hell was I thinking? On TV or in the magazine…
